Between Heaven and Earth revolves around the divorce of Salma (Mouna Hawa), a Palestinian From Nazareth and her husband, Tamer (Firas Nassar), son of a famous intellectual and the fact they hail from either side of the green line.

Their divorce is shaping up to be fast, clean and easy. The biggest difficulty in Salma and Tamer’s case seems not to be the division of assets or doing their dirty laundry in public, but rather crossing the Israeli border. They have been living in Palestine for five years but need to get to Salma’s motherland to get their business done and dusted. Luckily, Tamer gets a three-day pass, but when the soon-to-be-former couple reaches court, things get complicated. Entered in the Cairo International Film Festival and winner of best Screenplay.
